General Introduction: Within every society, there is a group that devotes themselves to the pursuit of knowledge, and the Mushru are no exception. The Mushru Magi rank as some of the most powerful magi in the universe. Years of study have allowed them to gather vast quantities of knowledge that rival the gods themselves.

Combat: Mushru Magi never raise arms. They instead use magic. They never carry weapons of any sort, instead carrying many different mushrooms to be used as spell components. Different mushrooms with magical capabilities are grown by the Mushru Magi, and should any non-Mushru try to utilize them, they will crumble. Only the mushru know how to utilize these mushrooms, and they are not about to tell anyone. They recieve +4 to magical actions, including resistance, when using these mushrooms. Should the Mushru Magi run out of components (an extremely rare occurance indeed), they will resort to the Spore Cloud and make their escape.

Habitat/Society: The Mushru Magi live in a group that resembles a school or laboratory, with smaller groups consisting of around 10 individuals. Study and magical practice of magic are of utmost importance. Every 100 years, a headmaster is chosen to run the school, called Academy. The headmaster will appoint a represenative to the Gathering, yet this is merely symbolic, for the Mushru Magi prefer to run themselves, without interference from the rest of society.

Ecology: Any gender of Mushru can become a Mushru Magi. However, about 2 centuries of study are required to attain high level magic. All Mushru Magi have blue caps with white spots that glow in the dark. They are frailer than other Mushru, yet they make up for it in magical ability.
